A good overview of the history of the Celtic People from the East to Ireland. Covers basically the Culture and unifying characteristics. The big limitation to their history is the fact that they did not write until later and the victors ( romans)write history. A valiant effort.

A fascinating, if scholarly, history of the Celtic people, how they came to be in Europe, and how the last remnants are found in the British Isles. Not light reading, but very worth the read.
